UCLA vs. Stanford: Free NCAAF Betting Picks and Game Predictions
In seasons ago, a football match between the Stanford Cardinal and UCLA Bruins was cause to for intrigue and excitement. The 2019 effort is not among them as either side find themselves irrelevant at the Pac-12 races midway through October.
Injury updates provide the difficulty within their struggle Thursday night in Stanford Stadium, also part of the reason that why the sports publications have postponed posting numbers for the match. A few stores that are testing the waters possess the Cardinal preferred by about a touchdown in the 91st meeting between the foes.
As for delight in this years matchup, UCLA and Chip Kelly have been currently enjoying the underdog role in hopes of finishing an 11-game losing streak to Stanford. The Cardinal domination has cut down combined with three ties into a 45-42 record, although the Bruins once held a commanding lead in this series.
Last years meeting in Los Angeles has been a fun sport to see because Stanford scored a touchdown to maintain its streak alive with a 49-42 decision. The final pushed a -7 line ending s string of six successive Cardinal covers.
With the two teams combining for nearly 1,000 yards of offense, the 2018 battle readily breached the 61-point complete. Four of the last five meetings in Stanford were over winners.
Sitting at the bottom of the Pac-12 South Division, the only highlight for UCLAs year has been a wild rally for a 67-63 rally at then No. 19 Washington State four Saturdays past. The Bruins expect the excess rest will allow after missing the reduction against the Beavers sophomore QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson to match up to this one, and followed up with losses at Arizona and to Oregon State prior to their bye week.
Stanford also had last week off in preparation for that particular one, and David Shaw is hoping that provides his QB time to recover from a thumb. As Foster Sarell and Henry Hattis on the line, costello is formally questionable.
There is a small chance of rain in the Palo Alto region on Thursday evening, with the thermometer in the upper-60s at kickoff. The weatherman can be anticipating a NW wind at the mph range, which could get involved on field goal attempts.
Bettors will need to get the latest injury upgrades they can before going to the window, and now I am comfortable laying 6 along with my NCAAF pick that is totally free.
